NSF-REU Projects in Computational Biology

The Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology recently received funding to 
it's long standing NSF-REU in mathematics.  One of the area domains this
summer is computational biology, and students with interests in mathematics,
computer science and biology are encouraged to apply.  Ideal candidates will
be pursing a degree in one of these and will have an appreciation for the
others.  Possible projects include, but are not restricted to:

*) the study of metabolic networks through flux balance analysis
*) protein structure alignment
*) haplotyping
*) sequence alignment

The field of computational biology is rich with applications in mathematical
programming, and there are important and challenging problems that lend
themselves to mathematical analysis, computational exploration, and 
interpretation.  This summer's undergraduate research experience will be
tailored to the unique mix of the student cohort.
